Sunday, 17th April 2016

Monday musings: Ref off
Monday, 4th April 2016
by Graeme Howlett
''When both sets of players and managers agree that a player has been harshly sent off, it's difficult to express sympathy with the referee. And when your team had been the victim of a string of similarly-poor calls, it's perhaps no surprise that conspiracy theories begin to emerge. ..''

Manchester United v West Ham United
Friday, 11th March 2016
by Preview Percy
''A headline on the BBC News website suggests that branches of McDonalds in Manchester are to start hiring bouncers, possibly in response to the news that Preview Percy will be up there this weekend. They needn't have bothered though - the only other time he went into one of their places he walked out in disgust in protest at the time it was taking for a waiter to come to his table to take his order for tea and scones......''
